Re: treating mites
First of all it is only going to have much effect when the hive is broodless. The main issue to me, though, is no one has really explained to my satisfaction how ps dusting equates to actually killing mites. My experience shows it does knock down a lot of mites and when used with a sbb most will probably end up on the ground but research has shown that they can live several days without a host and they are very mobile little critters, so I am not sure what stops reinfestation.
